The Royal Tenenbaums

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere.

There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya?

Four Lessons and Four Questions from the 2013 Oscars” — He means 2014, but Joe Reid at The Wire tries to find context and scratches his head. From Adelle Dazim to a no-show hero, Reid dissects a show that was pure bush league.

Understanding the 2014 Academy Awards” — Mark Harris at Grantland has a smarter take on it all, boiling down the simple binary between winners and losers as a damned terrible way to answer more complicated artistic/cultural questions.

Oscars: Hollywood’s Conflicted Selfie” — Andrew O’Hehir at Salon finds a lot of worth in Ellen’s audience stunt (the one not covered with pepperoni) as a metaphor for the entire evening.

Meant to Be Heard, Not Seen: The Invisible Performances Behind Foley Art” — Katherine Kilkenny at profiles the sweet sounds of boxing gloves against cloth and antique guns (and the artists who wield them).

The Royal Tenenbaums: Wes Anderson’s family values” — Keith Phipps at The Dissolve psychoanalyzes down to the neglectful heart of the clan’s problems. Spoiler: matching track suits aren’t to blame for anything.
